Thanks for the memories! I started lifting about this
time, and lived in SoCal just east of San Berdoo. Got
down to Golds in Venice to train a few times and met
some of these guys. I also like Ric's corner where he
interviews these champions from the past. What ever
happened to the Barbarians? I remember one time meeting
these guys, they were just huge and dressed like they
were in Oregon instead of a SoCal beach area!

Great video Ric. I loved this era. It was during this
time when I first started using weights. I reckon it
must be at around 82 because you can see Tom Platz's
torn right bicep.

I remember seeing articles in M&F about the "Barbarian
Brothers".......those dudes would do some crazy
things...the poundages they used were INSANE,great

Great moving snapshots of the past!

I noticed
that through the years I have slowed down the movement
in the rep and have made the movement smoother. That,
however is the way I used to work out. Go Beetles!
